We have been using the ipsCA free cert at South Plains College for a
while.  I have two *.southplainscollege.edu certificates, one generated
for Linux based hosts and one generated for Windows hosts.  I have no
problems with them.

Subject: [SECURITY] ipsCA and free .edu certs

Hi folks,

It was recently brought to my attention that ipsCA offers free 2 year
256 bit SSL certificates for educational institutions (in the .edu
domain).  Does anybody have any experience with them?  I note that
root cert is bundled into Firefox, but does anyone know  about IE or
Safari?  Is there a limit to the number of certificates?
